John Schnatter (owner of Papa John's Pizza) claims that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is going to cause him to raise prices. Literally no-one believes that a local chain would go to such a ridiculous length to "prove a political point"."Our best estimate is that the Obamacare will cost about 11 cents to 14 cents per pizza or 15 cents or 20 cents per order from a corporate basis," Schnatter said in response to a question from a financial analyst. "To put that in perspective, our average delivery charge is $1.75 to $2.50 or about ten-fold our estimated cost of the Obamacare to Papa John's."
This would be an utterly stupid thing to do, and I sincerely hope Schnatter reconsiders.
